On the morning of my birthday, I saw two turkeys walking through a yard along my way.
It was a beautiful morning, and they were not worried that I got out of the car to take their pictures.
They were beauties.
I love when I have time to take pictures and the animals are not panicking.
Lilly had a good roll in the grass the next day... God bless Troy, who has been cutting every week.
Thursday, I ran into the road crew several times.
And our heron friend.
Believe me, this woodpecker let the sparrows know it was HIS suet!
Friday I was at the Ag Hall.... and took some lovely pictures in the garden.
I have never grown dahlias, but these are convincing me.
Moth sex on the coreopsis. I kid you not.
The echinacea plants were alive with goldfinches, male and female!
The females are harder to see. There were actually six males at one time.
(the female is directly in the middle)
I have been trying for days to get this juvenile hawk.
He is always too far away.
Saturday, I saw this scene on the way home from the farm.
I am not seeing as many in the air... but....
This was the scene on my way home from church this morning.
I count ten.
It was very foggy this morning, but by this afternoon, it all burned off
and our temperate temps of the last week were warming up.
And I was rewarded on the way after church by sight of the juvenile red-tail that I showed you on the hangar building above,
Here is our sweet boy running to go home, to end the week.
Go, Jester, Go!!!
